•° Chapter Nine: The Truth °•
It’s been a week since the full moon had happened and Cora came back home. It was nice having Cora back but today was the day she left to keep searching for anything that could help me out with my shifting. I didn’t want Cora to leave so soon but it was bound to happen at some point or another. Sighing I snapped out of my thoughts as I helped Cora get her suitcase from the trunk of the car. Once we got her suit cases out, I hugged Cora tightly and she returned the hug. We pulled away after a couple of minutes because we both knew she had a flight that she couldn’t miss. Cora gave me a warm smile and squeezed my shoulder reassuringly.
I only sighed. “Do you have to leave so soon?”
Cora nodded. “Yes only because I need to follow this lead about how your shifting on full moons. And I’m just hopping it won’t be a dead end again.”
I nodded sighing in understatement that she was only leaving to help me out, so I wouldn’t have to be in pain no more and I could just shifted at will. “Okay, but be careful.”
“I should be the one saying that to you.” She chuckled before pulling me into an tight embrace. “Take care of yourself, kiddo. I promise to be back home as soon as I can.”
“I will, I promise. And please be safe.” I replied.
“I will, but now I should get going.” She sighed.
I nodded my head in agreement and hugged her one last time. Then soon she pulled away and walked into the airport before waving goodbye. I then ran my fingers through my hair and got back into my car, starting the engine. Then soon I was off, driving back home. After the thirty minute drive, I was back at my house. I parked my car in the drive way before heading inside then shutting and locking the door. I then walked over to the couch and collapsed on it with a sigh. Since it was just a Sunday evening their wasn’t much to do since their was school tomorrow and Halloween was slowly approaching. Meaning their was nothing to do but relax and think of everything that has happened, so I did.
It was silence for a awhile until I heard my phone go off. I pulled my phone out my back pocket and looked at the text notification that appeared on my screen from Kaden. But before I could see what it said another message appeared then another and another. Groaning I just set my phone on the coffee table and let it ping out as I placed an pillow over my head. Soon the pinging stopped and I sighed only until I heard my phone vibrating on the table. I removed the pillow and looked at my phone seeing that Kaden was calling now. I picked my phone up debating whether or not I should answer but then decide to turn my phone off. Sighing I laid back on the couch knowing that I couldn’t keep avoiding and dodging Kaden, I would have to face him at some point. Just it wasn’t now.
After a while I heard a knock at my door. I groaned and got up from laying on the couch and went to the door. I leaned up and looked through the peephole to see Mia and Skylar standing there. I sighed in relief and unlocked the door, letting them in. They walked in and we all sat on the couch to watch a movie. We sat in quiet for a couple of minutes before Skylar decide to break the quietness.
“So have you spoke to you know who?” The redhead asked.
I shook my head. “No, I haven’t spoken to Kaden.”
She only sighed. “You know you can’t keep avoiding him forever. You have to talk to him.”
“But I can’t! After what happened that night I-I just can’t.” I sighed. “I can’t look into the eyes of someone who nearly killed me, Sky. It would be a lot to handle since I’m not in the right mind set and my emotions would be a lot to bare, plus I love him..”
Mia nodded, looking at Skylar. “You have to understand how she’s feeling with the situation, Skylar. She can face him when she’s emotional and mentally ready, right now isn’t the time.”
“At some point she’s going to have too, you know. She can’t keep hiding out at home.” The banshee tried to argue.
“She can and she will for however long she wants. She needs to be ready mentally to face him. Nikki just can’t go see him now because she’ll just wolf out and run. And if you want that to happen you can go chase after her then.” Mia snapped before getting up and going into the kitchen.
Skylar rolled her eyes and crossed her arms looking back at the tv. I only sighed and leaned back into the couch. Soon Mia came back and we just sat there watching Riverdale. We watched a couple of episodes before one by one we all fall asleep on the couch.
The next morning I woke up still on the couch. Groaning I grabbed my phone and looked at the time seeing I was late to school. I sat up as I turned my phone off and debated if I should go or not. But soon I realized that enough was enough and I should go today. I’ve missed enough school days and I didn’t need child services after me. So I got up and went to take a quick shower and get ready for the day. And once I was ready, I left.
After the drive to school, I parked the car and headed inside. Once I walked in I seen that the hallway was nearly empty besides the kids who were skipping class or the ones that had a free period and didn’t know what they should do. I then started walking to Lydia’s office to get a late slip for her. I stopped at the front desk and seen the lady that worked the front desk wasn’t here, so I just walked into Lydia’s office. I quietly shut the door behind me before turning to Lydia who looked up at me from the paperwork she was doing and gave me a smile.
“Nikki, welcome back. I hope you’re feeling much better from everything that’s been going on.” Lydia said as she leaned back in her chair. “So what can I do for you?”
I gave Lydia a small smile. “I just need a late slip to class so I don’t get detention.”
Lydia nodded and grabbed a yellow slip writing something down then handing me the piece of paper. Before I walked out after saying thank you, Lydia called after me.
“Yeah, Lydia?” I asked turning to face her.
“If you need anything please let me know, okay?” Lydia said looking directly at me.
I nodded my head smiling. “I will, thank you.”
Lydia smiled before getting back to the paperwork in front of her as I headed out. I then walked the quiet halls to class before going in the classroom. As I walked in everyone turned to look at but the one person I made eyes contact with was Kaden. I gulped and gave the teacher my late slip before hurrying to my seat so the teacher can carry on with his lesson. I sat down in my seat, taking out my textbook and noticed Kaden starring at me. I quickly looked away from him and looked at Mia, who place her hand on my arm.
“Are you okay?” Mia whispered and I nodded giving my best friend a reassuring smile.
But was I really okay?
The school day flew passed and I almost made the day avoiding Kaden. It was the end of the day and everyone was leaving to go home and hang out with friends. I shut my locker knowing all I had to do was to make it to my car and I would be home free. I started walking to the doors to the parking lot before an hand grabbed my arm and pulled me into the janitor closet. I heard the door get locked before the lights in the closet was turned on reviling that Kaden was the one who pulled me in here. I noticed that this time I couldn’t escape and now would be the time I faced him.
I watched as Kaden crossed his arms and stood in front of me, blocking the the only exit in the small space. I was able to to small the tension tin the room and it was thick enough for me to cut. Kaden looked down at me and all I could was look away from his gaze. We both stayed quiet waiting for the other to say something, anything but neither of us did. But then Kaden cleared his throat gaining my attention.
"So are you going to tell me why you've been avoiding me?" He asked raising an eyebrow.
I sighed as I played with my sweater sleeve. "It's complicated.."
Kaden only rolled his eyes and scoffed. "Complicated, huh? Sure it is, to make you just avoid your boyfriend for basically a damn week without at least a text saying you're okay."
"I'm sorry..." I whispered. "Just-I couldn't be around you for a bit since things were complicated. You have to understand.'
"But I don't understand Nikki, make me understand." He said more in a calm tone.
"I-I can't!" I huffed running my fingers through my hair.
"Yes you can, I'm not going to judge you. I could never judge you." Kaden said as he stepped closer to me.
I stepped back and looked at him. "Not here because you never know who or what is listening."
He nodded. "Okay, we can go to my house-"
"No!" I replied cutting him off. "We have to go back to my place where I'll feel safe."
Kaden looked at me skeptically before nodded in agreement with me. He then unlocked the door and we stepped out into the empty hallway. I released the breath that I didn't realize I was holding.We both then walked silently out to the nearly empty parking lot. I felt Kaden's gaze on me before I quickly walked over to my car and he walked to his. then we both left the school parking lot and head to my house.
Once we were their, we got out of our separate vehicle and headed inside. I then shut and locked the door before going into the kitchen as Kaden sat on the couch in the living room. I went back into the room and gave Kaden a water and sat next to him. I took a calming breath, still trying to figure out how I was going to tell the man I love that I'm the creature he is hunting. I then looked at Kaden, biting my lip then decided that this is the time I was going to to tell him everything. I just hope I could trust him.
"I'm the demon wolf that you're hunting." I finally said.
Kaden only looked at me slightly shocked before speaking. "You can't be, I would have known if you were. And how do you know about the demon?"
"Like I just said, I am the demon wolf." I said rolling my eyes.
"Impossible! You can't be because it's dead unless you really are the last one-" Kaden replied.
"Wait, what do you mean the last one?" I asked as I tried to control my anger.
Kaden sighed. "If you really are the demon wolf I've been hunting for weeks, then you are the last of your kind. Every other one is dead but you."
My eyes glowed red in anger as I clenched my fist, letting my claws dig into my palm. I then stood up and backed away from Kaden, looking at him in hatred. He only just stared at me then gasped which made me turn to look at the window, only to see my eyes glowing their normal color that I keep hidden from everyone. I then noticed Kaden getting up from the couch and walking towards me. I quickly turned around and growled at him.
"Back the hell up now, Argent." I hissed.
Kaden backed up a bit, raising his hands in surrender. "Nikki, I'm not going to hurt you. I swear."
I only scoffed. "Sure you aren't just like you didn't hurt the people that could have taught me how to control my shifting."
"I didn't kill them, Malcom and his crew did." Kaden explained.
"Then why are you working with him now?" I asked in a low growl.
"Because of my family name and since my dad wasn't going to do it, Malcom came to me." Kaden said looking away from me ashamed. "And I agreed... But at the time he didn't specially tell me what I was going to be helping him killed. You have to believe me, listen to my heart beat. Please Nikki."
I only sighed when I heard his heart not skip a beat before glaring at him. "Remember your family name, Argent. You damn hunters are some great lairs, so how am I supped to believe that? I shouldn't actually because our family has some background with each other. Because wasn't it your aunt who seduced my brother than killed my mother and other family members in a fire your family set on my family home? Oh yeah, that's right it was." I seethed.
"Nikki please, I love you. You know I wouldn't hurt you, just please believe me." Kaden pleaded.
"Oh? You wouldn't hurt me? But wasn't it you who had shot at me just a week and I nearly died from it? Yeah it was, I was able to make out those features of yours anywhere." I huffed.
"I'm sorry! I didn't know it was yo at the time, if I did I wouldn't have done it." Kaden argued. "Why didn't you tell me what you are sooner?"
"Because I didn't know if I could trust you after I seen Malcom in your home that day. How could I tell someone I love what I am when he was working with the enemy?" I said rhetorically.
Kaden sighed and walked closer to me despite my warning growls. He then grabbed me by my waist and pulled me flushed against him. I only growled glaring up at him as he rolled his eyes before he smashed his lips on my mine in a heated passionate kiss. I growled and bit his bottom lip earning a groan from him. I was then pushed up against a wall which made me groan and I felt Kaden smirk against my lips before he pulled away then kissed down my neck. I moaned as I felt myself shift back to normal and my anger soon turned to lust. Kaden then kissed his way back up to my lips and kissed me, which I returned this time.
I wrapped my arms around his neck as he then pulled and whispered in my ear huskily. "Jump."
I bit my lip, jumping up and wrapping my legs around his waist. I felt Kaden's hands move down to my thighs to hold me up before he kissed me but this time it was lustfully. I returned the kiss and took off my sweater the ripped Kaden's shirt open. I pulled away from the kiss then kissed and sucking on his neck leaving hickies behind. I felt Kaden carry me and laid me on, I'm assuming the dinning room table. I let Kaden pulled my shirt off my shirt off before he started kissing all over my neck and chest while leaving hickies.
I moaned and watched as he kissed between my breast then I felt him reach behind my back, making me arch my back as he unclippped my bra. Kaden pulled my bra off me and tossed it aside as he took my left nipple in his mouth. I moaned as he sucked on my nipple and pinched the other one. He then pulled away and dragged his lips down my body till he reached my pants. I watched as he undid them and pulled my pants off along with my panties. I watched Kaden go down then start to suck and lick my clit roughly. I moan loudly and gripped Kaden's hair tightly before pulling on it earning a groan from him. He's licks started to get faster making me keep moaning loudly.
"Fuck... I'm close." I moaned pulling his hair.
Kaden's licks become more frantic as he stuck two fingers in me, making me arch my back off the table. After a couple more rough sucks I cum in Kaden's mouth and on his fingers. Kaden pulled away after giving me one last lick and pulled his fingers out of me before sticking his fingers in his mouth. He then took his fingers out his mouth and started to undo his pants before I sat up stopping him.
He looked at me confused. "What's wrong?"
"We need a condom." I smirked.
He rolled his eyes. "I'll pull out."
I then rolled my eyes. "Keep rolling your eyes at me and you won't get no sex."
"Keep up with that little attitude you got or I'll make sure you wish you weren't giving me an attitude." Kaden said as he gripped my waist tightly.
I only rolled my eyes and squeaked as Kaden pulled me off the table then bent me over the table. He then slapped my ass before gripping my ass cheek and my hair.
He then leaned down and whispered in my ear. "Didn’t I tell you to fucking stop with your little attitude?"
I bit the inside of my lower lip and groan. "No you didn’t so I can care less."
"Well maybe I should give you a reminder." Kaden replied as he roughly thrust into me.
I moaned loudly as Kaden's thrust started to become rough while he slapped my ass from time. I felt my claws grow out and and I dragged them down the table, leaving claw marks behind. Kaden then gripped my hair in his hand before pulling my hair back making me tilt me head back and moan loudly. He did it again and slapped my ass as he's thrust started to get faster. Then he reach around and started to rub my clit fast making me bit my bottom lip.
He leaned down to my ear whispering huskily. "How's this for you're fucking reminder?" He bit my earlobe when I didn't answer and grabbed my hair. "Fucking answer me."
"Fuck Kaden..." Was the only thing I could mange to get out my mouth which made him smirk.
He pulled my hair once more and kept thrusting. After a couple more thrust I felt myself tighten around Kaden's cock. And he must've felt it too since his thrust got more aggressive. But soon I came undone, squirting my juices on his cock. He then pulled out of me and turned me around before sitting me on my knees. I then realized what he wanted me to do. So I licked his tip while staring up at him before I took all of him in my mouth, though whatever I couldn't take in my mouth I pumped with my hand.
Kaden then started to tread his fingers through my hair only to grip it tightly once I sped up my pace. I heard him mumble a quiet fuck, which only made me suck his cock faster. But then soon I felt Kaden tensing up in my mouth right be his load shot in my mouth and down my throat. I swallow as Kaden pulled me up to my feet before he picked me up, putting me over his shoulder. He then carried upstairs into the bathroom where we went for round two, then we had round three in my bedroom. We kept going until both of us were tired and shortly went to bed around five in the morning wrapped in each others arms.
